SpikeDDS Posted September 25, 2017 Share Posted September 25, 2017 It was nice of Boston to put out all of their prospects in our first game at LCA. Kinda like most Homecoming football games, where they schedule the patsy on that game to all but ensure a home victory for Homecoming weekend. Good to see Frk get a couple and respond well, but it all has to be taken with a grain of salt considering who the Bruins had on the ice against us. They are talking up his weapon of a shot. But it is one thing to have an effective weapon at the AHL level and another for it to still be effective at the NHL level. See Pulkkinnen. Having said that, it might be an effective weapon on the PP. The prospect of having that shot on our PP vs. 4 NHL skaters is intriguing at this point. The one thing I will say is that fundamentally speaking, Howard looks far superior to Mrazek so far. Unless something changes drastically, I think the starting spot is Howard's to lose. In Mrazek's defense, in the game he got shelled, on a couple of the goals, he made the first save and the D just wasn't there to clear the puck. I'd like to see Howard go up against real NHL lineups. But I have more confidence in Howard at this point. P.S. It'll probably be years before I see it in person, but that Jumbotron DOES look amazing.
